Ahead of the release of Tirzah’s new album Colourgrade, due October 1st, the multi-artist has shared her new single “Hive Mind.” The track was written with frequent collaborators Coby Sey and Mica Levi. With a thumping kick and rolling synth melody beneath its call-and-response vocal duet, “Hive Mind” is a tribute to community and family, and all the friction and harmony that comes with it. “Hive Mind” is the fourth track to be shared from Colourgrade, after the soft luminescence of “Send Me,” “Sink In” and “Tectonic.”
The accompanying video directed, edited, and shot by Leah Walker and Rebecca Salvadori is a ten-minute mini-film encapsulating that “Hive Mind” of Tirzah’s including the extended CURL crew, Coby Sey and Mica Levi.
Colourgrade follows 2018’s LP, Devotion. Recorded soon after the birth of her first child and shortly before her second child was born, it forms a subconscious snapshot across a year when Tirzah was playing live regularly for the first time, in the depths of promoting Devotion.
The album explores recovery, gratitude and new beginnings, presenting a singer having discovered the type of love that is shared between a mother and a child for the first time, whilst simultaneously working as an artist. Capturing both the great and the scary, the exhaustion and the recovery.
